I love working on complicated cases and seeing the patient’s reaction once treatment is finished. It brings me so much happiness to see the joy in their eyes.

Christine graduated as valedictorian from Concorde Career Institute in May 2010 and did her externship with Dallas Dental Arts. She has been an amazing member of our team ever since! When she’s not assisting the doctors with patient care, she enjoys spending time with her husband, son Cole, and baby girl Ruby. She loves all types of arts and crafts, from crocheting to scrapbooking to painting. She’s currently trying to learn some traditional and modern calligraphy!

I love when a patient feels confident in their smile! I work hard to help people feel at ease in the chair: supporting and encouraging them as they improve their oral health and reclaim their smile’s beauty.

She is a surgical assistant to Dr. Margolin, providing patient care prior to, during, and after procedures, as well as monitoring patient sedations.

I really appreciate our patients. Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone leave with a pleased smile on their face and knowing I was part of the team that made that smile happen.

Her other duties include setting up and breaking down operatories, sterilization, and inventory. Melissa shares her life with her two dogs, Milo and Zoey.
